Celine Dion goes ‘gaga’ at Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas show — VIDEO

Celine Dion went Gaga on the Strip on Sunday night.

The long-running Colosseum at Caesars Palace superstar took in Lady Gaga’s “Enigma” performance at Park Theater and touched off pandemonium backstage, in crowd and across social media.

“Give it up for Celine Dion!” Gaga said during her sold-out performance, as the crowd went nuts. “She prayed with me and my entire crew backstage before the show. That is how amazing she is. And when she was asked if she had any advice for me in Las Vegas, she said I didn’t need it because I was strong and I knew what I was doing.”

She continued, “And, oh my God, I swear to you, the number of women that I can count on one hand that are supportive in this industry—I would lose fingers, OK? You are amazing.”

Dion’s level of excitement — even euphoria — shone on Instagram and Twitter, as she grooved to “Telephone,” “Edge of Glory,” “Born This Way” and “Bad Romance.”

Celine’s support of the Gaga’s premiere at Park Theater was something of a christening, as Celine has been the queen of such Vegas residency since she opened “A New Day …” at the Colosseum in March 2003. She has announced she is ending her second residency at Caesars on June 8. Gaga, certainly, seems ready to fill Celine’s superstar void in Las Vegas.
